Low Carb Muffins in a Minute (MIM)


Active Member
They work great as a treat or as a nice "bread" option.
I'm going to dedicate this thread to low carb 'MIM's, which for those of you who are unfamiliar with the MIM, these are low carb flax meal muffins, which cook in the microwave in a mere 65 seconds!
Here is the recipe and the method for the original muffin recipe:
Serving Size: 1
1/4 cup flax meal (8.09 total carbs, 7.6 fiber) which is 30 grams in weight
1/2 teaspoon baking powder (0.64 net carbs)
1 packet splenda packet (0.9 net carbs)
1 teaspoon cinnamon (1.84 total carbs, 1.2 fiber)
1 large egg (0.6 net carbs)
1 teaspoon butter
(total carbs is 12.07, fiber is 8.8; net carbs is 3.27)
Put the dry ingredients in a coffee mug.
Then add the egg and the butter. Mix.
Microwave 1 minute. Try one of the following toppings:
Cream cheese
Almond butter
Sugar free Jam
Savory Version:
1/4 cup flax meal
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Pinch of salt & black pepper
Herb/spices of choice*
1 large egg
1 teaspoon butter
* Any dried herbs, I like rosemary or sage. You could also add whichever spices you like, so you have a savory bread to compliment your meal- like adding chili flakes to go with low carb chili.
